SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new hand held molecular scanner that helps consumers better understand the physical make-up of their food is featured in this week's segment of The Lempert Report Innovation Series, a weekly video series featuring innovation in the food world.
Called SCiO, the tiny spectrometer allows people to get instant information about the chemical make-up of nearly anything.
For example, SCiO can get nutritional facts about different kinds of foods, see how ripe fruit is through a peel, and even authenticate medications or supplements.
"The applications are limitless and while consumers will enjoy it, the device also will help farmers figure out the ideal time for harvesting crops by assessing a fruit or vegetable's firmness, acid composition and level of sweetness, says Phil Lempert, CEO and editor of The Lempert Report.
When performing a scan, SCiO's optical sensor captures the item's molecular footprint, measures how those molecules interact with light, and then converts into the data it sends to your phone.
The Lempert Report Innovation Series is available online for consumers, food industry insiders and also as a ready-to-air segment for newsrooms. Throughout the video, "Tetra Pak Tips" provide behind-the-scenes insight about the products, packaging and trends.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
